A conservative estimate of those who could meet the criteria for sexual addiction and compulsivity is that of about 3 – 5% of the United States population. This is most likely a very conservative estimate, since these numbers are based on individuals who seek treatment.
Based on alcohol and drug statistics, we do know that more people suffer from this problem, than actually seek treatment. These percentages may be based on what we currently understand sexual addiction and compulsivity to be, and should not be interpreted as unchanging truths.
